Sketch of an old basic tabby cat, commissioned art for a mate.


cat, graphite

I`m really a self taught artist. A Geordie lad, hailing from a small mining village called Pegswood in Northumberland, originally, from Polish parents. I now live in Stannington, Northumberland, where I’m enjoying all that retirement has to offer.

I am available for commissions, including portraiture, animals and also for one off caricatures, for hire to wedding receptions, parties, local schools, fun fairs and fetes etc.

    Typical cat pose. This is great. Your dog sketches are wonderful too…..and horses.

    Pleased to hear you like my work. This is my latest piece, which I finished last night, and took about four to five hours to complete. My first cat, ever!

    I think more cats are in order – your dogs are great, too, but this is so….cat.

  • OK, I promise you more cats, I have two fiesty grey Persains around the house here somewhere, now if they’ll stay still long enough for me to shoot their photos, then we are cooking!

    Excellent drawing! Will you remove the “filter”, so your work will be visable to our group: Domestic and Pedigree Cats.

    “Don’t want my photo taken..!”…He looks a little grumpy…and I’ll bet that tail was swishing…(He should have been honoured to be your first puss….Nice one Jan.

  • Thanx Meg, I’m due to sketch another cat before Christmas, looking forward to the challenge.
